    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Pay was good compared to the S. Ohio / N. Kentucky area as a whole. Benefits were good as well.

    Cons

    As has been stated in various reviews on this site, if you are too intelligent, attractive, or bring sound business experience with you to the role, expect to be shunned eventually if not immediately. In the S. Ohio/N. Kentucky region there are not many opportunities, even for college graduates so its easy to scare the majority into conforming into whatever management requires at the time. Where else can they go? This was true even before the world blew up.

    They will hire minorities but they expect them to be docile, weak and just smart enough to do what is asked of them. No matter how smart you are, if you are a black male you have little chance of making any real progress. Of course there are the "tokens" to make things look good on the surface. Once a manager even sent out an email to his team that had a Martin Luther King speech in it that said the Negro was still not free. Imagine that in this day and age. This kind of behavior is condoned in Covington Kentucky.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity training should be mandatory. These people need a lot of help in this area. Never seen a group of people in such a large company with such strong racial biases. How does a national company like Fidelity allow this

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the many great benefits is the Tuition Reimbursement program, they cover 10K per calendar year. Overall Great benefits.

    Cons

    The group I worked for did a poor job on Career development and with the work environment morale. Just a reminder that this does not occur across Fidelity Investments.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to re-evaluate the compensation grade and career path for the employees.
